“The LORD would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend” Exodus 33:11 (NIV)

I have always been intrigued with this verse. Moses would go into a special tent and actually talk to God.

I do understand that things worked a little differently in the Old Testament. But the description of how they conversed blows me away, ‘as one speaks to a friend’!

This changed my prayer times. This changed how I view God. Sure, He is a holy, all powerful Deity. Yet, He is my friend.

During some really stressful times, I have gotten in my car to go for a drive to get alone and  pour my heart out to my Friend.


Heavenly Father, teach me to be Your friend. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
